Further tips and information on treatment
The maturing child can also benefit from the administration of homeopathic remedies. During pregnancy you should deal intensively with the respective appearance or drug picture of the homeopathic remedy. Some remedies are particularly suitable for the first trimester of pregnancy, for example to prevent premature birth. Others, on the other hand, can trigger labor and should therefore only be administered at a very late stage if there is an appropriate indication.
If in doubt, pregnant women should consult a homeopath, a homeopathic gynecologist or a midwife before taking homeopathic medicines and the respective potencies.
Dosage for pregnant women
For pregnant women, low potencies that can be administered several times a day are generally suitable for acute treatment. In the case of chronic complaints, higher potencies are often required at longer intervals, but this should ideally be medically clarified.
